The musical artist Britney Spears posted on Instagram that she would rather hang out with the homeless than with the Hollywood elite.
Do you trust the main stream media?

Her post said:
“God is not nice. Does that mean the devil is EXTREMELY HOT AND NICE? I’d rather hang out with homeless people than the people in Hollywood … JUST SAYING!!!!”
This is somewhat surprising since the star had a wedding not too long ago. The guest list was full of celebrities and no homeless people in sight.
The Daily Mail reported:
“A number of commenters noted the celebrity presence at her June 9 wedding to Sam Asghari at her Thousand Oaks, California home, as the guest list included Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Ansel Elgort, Drew Barrymore, and Donatella Versace.
‘I remember seeing how starved for Hollywood people your wedding was with all the homeless people there,’ one user wrote, while another said, ‘Her wedding guest list was literally only the biggest names in Hollywood. Proof that someone else is orchestrating her life, STILL.'”
What fans of Britney Spears are referring to is her father. Like many former Disney stars from the late 80s to mid-2000s, child star actors didn’t have the glamorous life we had thought.
For 13 years, Britney Spears’s father had complete control over her finances and personal life. It was in the form of legal guardianship called a conservatorship.
In non-famous people situations, a conservatorship is common for individuals with dementia or other mental illnesses.
According to BBC News:
“Spears’ conservatorship was split into two parts – one for her estate and financial affairs, the other for her as a person.
Jamie Spears was in charge of both parts but stepped down as his daughter’s personal conservator in 2019 citing health reasons, replaced by a court-appointed care professional.
Mr. Spears was suspended as conservator of her financial estate in September 2021, replaced by an accountant chosen by Britney and her lawyer.”
Whether or not Britney is being controlled again, one thing is for sure; child stars never had it easy.
We all remember Amanda Bynes and Lindsey Lohan. Their struggles with addictions and what have you.
Not long ago, Shia Labeouf revealed his relationship with his father. According to Suggest referring to another Daily mail article:
“…he was once accused of sexual harassment on the set of his son’s show, Even Stevens. The outlet also revealed that he allegedly assaulted a gay Disney executive after seeing the man give Shia a hug.
The publication discovered that Jeffrey was laying low in Costa Rica near Montezuma, a reputed destination for sex tourism. Prior to that, he lived in a remote mountain town in California, far from his last known registered address in Glendale.
Perhaps the distance was good for his son. Shia previously revealed that his childhood included accompanying Jeffrey to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. His father was also a heroin addict with a perchance for violence. In one horrific incident, the war vet had a flashback and pulled a gun on his son. It’s one of the many reasons the actor also owns a gun and sleeps with it to this day.”
Shia LaBeouf became legally emancipated when he turned 15. Anyone who grew up watching the Disney channel during the early 2000s would tell you that we all assumed that Shia Labeouf would be a new and exceptionally talented actor.
Due to his diversity in roles such as the true story “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” to the family film “Holes,” and action movies such as “Eagle Eye,” it was sad to see such talent fall through the cracks. However, it also shows that stars like Britney Spears and Shia LaBeouf show us that places like Disney were never about magical fun times for kids.
